    Marco Rubio Better Answer Some Questions First

    Marco Rubio Better Answer Some Questions First

    January 30th, 2013 -
    by J. Christian Adams

    Republicans who support granting amnesty to foreign nationals residing in the United States illegally better answer some questions first.

    I have previously argued that warm and fuzzy feelings toward the GOP will not grow in minority communities simply because some Republicans accept as lawful what was once lawless. The racial interest groups such as the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) and LULAC have such a stranglehold in these communities that no GOP compromise will break it.

    Racially polarized voting patterns among blacks and Hispanics are the fruits of their labors over decades.

    Republicans who think these groups will allow goodwill toward the GOP to blossom once immigration reform passes are naÔve. After any concessions, they will be back to job number one: ensuring continued racially polarized voting that will eventually lead to the demise of the Republican Party, especially with millions of new voters.

    If you donít think thatís happening, then you arenít listening to them boast about ďdemographic changes.Ē

    Even if you donít accept the premise that racially polarized voting patterns are permanent and even if you donít think immigration concessions are a suicide pact for Republicans, still senators like Marco Rubio had better answer a few substantive questions.

    First, will you support a bill if it allows an alien convicted of a felony criminal offense or multiple misdemeanors to benefit from the legalization program? Currently, any alien who commits one felony or two misdemeanors cannot participate in immigration benefit programs such as Temporary Protected Status. Any legalization program should not be more generous.

    Are you going to support a bill if it allows aliens to participate in the legalization program who have been through legal proceedings and already ordered removed from the United States, but who have ignored the removal order? We call those people fugitives. Will you support them being included in amnesty?

    Naive or fools hard to say but the GOP is encouraging a third party sad fact is the DC crowd "both parties" believe they have so much power over the people they can prevent a third party but it is coming with the current distrust of both.
    I'm old with many opinions few solutions.
